was -- the passengers were safe, but it was certainly no thanks to the obama administration or mr. brennan. back to the article. patrick says, following this stunning and nearly fatal intelligence failure, which prompted members of both the house and senate intelligence oversight committees to call for his resignation, brennan lashed out at the obama administration's critics. in "usa today" editorial, he claimed that the quote, politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear mongering only served the goals of al qaeda. unquote. let me insert here, if he he thinks mr. brennan thinks that questioning failures of the obama administration is contributing to al qaeda, what must bombing innocent people with drones be doing for al qaeda? back to the article, says brennan also defended treating omar farooq as a criminal by having his rights read to him upon arrest and trying him in civilian court rather than transferring the would-be bomber to military custody as an enemy combatant. just days later brennan gave a speech to islamic law students in new york university where he was introduced by the pre
is good for us. >> obama care has done so much for us right here in tennessee. >> ashley judd has responded. ashley thanks senator mcconnell, karl rove and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn't been made yet. the kentucky senate race is obviously high profile with republican leader up for reelection. rove's ad is meant to be a preemptive strike. if democrats are able to topple senator mcconnell, they would be taking a page out of a republican playbook. history tells us. 2004 republicans targeted then tom daschle and they won. 2010, republicans, well, they couldn't wake to take out senate majority leader harry reid. but of course reid survived the challenge from tea partier sharron angle. let's remember, senator mcconnell said his number one priority was to make president obama a one-term president. let's turn to adam green tonight, co-founder of the pccc whose organization has taken out an ad against mitch mcconnell. this ad, adam -- good to have you with us tonight. this slick ad from american crossroad

? joining us now is oregon democratic senator ron wyden, who has repeatedly asked the obama administration bower drone policy. senator wyden, it's good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me again. >> did you not in fact get what you had asked the president to give you and that you thought you would be getting this morning based on your conversation with the president last night? >> rachel, it's not clear. the fact is, and i went in first thing this morning, i was able to read some information that was helpful. i'm just not convinced yet that it is the full legal analysis that we need to do to do vigorous oversight. what today was really about is of course it was a nomination hearing for john brennan. but it ultimately was a question of upholding our system of checks and balances in government. and i think that system is out of whack these days and we've got to do some more for transparency and accountability in getting those checks and balances back. >> in terms of this specific program that you've been asking about the legal advice for, specifically targeting
to come to my office and said my object apologies. -- abject apologies. >> goodbye, everyone. thank you. >> senator, nothing has embarrassed me more. daddy, why does john mccain hate you? that is tough. he is a great guy. >> you were in denver when mitt romney and barack obama were debating. michael was hosting a beer bash downtown with ken bock, for whom you did the robo call. they seem to be doing ok. john mccain, a former candidate for president of the united but the states. >> loser. >> and we are here to talk about benghazi. you have been on immigration since before it was cool. you have been battling it. i happen to be in the hagel hearings, and you talked about the iraq surged and needing one vote. i remember the mccain-kennedy immigration reform vote when you needed a last vote, and it did not come. you have been struggling along time about the future face of the country. when to solve a lot of insoluble problems. we are back at it. i am interested in how this will play out between you and president obama. how will you get it done this time? >> i think we will. by the way, and w
for walter. caller: yes, ma'am. hello? thank you for taking my call. i appreciate it. i sit here and i remember president obama before he was mr. obama said water boarding is torture and terrible and we will raise and elevate the way we treat people. that different countries will respect us again. now he is turning around and not just water boarding them but telling american people that if there are american citizens in foreign countries, i am just going to kill them. i will not try them or bring them up on charges or do any of that. i would just wax them. it just opens a whole new can of worms of shredding the constitution and just another example of people in power that abuse power and think they are above the law. and i don't understand how they can do it and justify it. as far as secrecy, the government has been keeping secrets from us ever since the beginning of time. when the people fear the government, you have terry -- when the government fears the people, you have democracy. of this land is slowly being destroyed by big business and a large conglomerate of power groups and we
, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time today. president obama's secret drone war revealed, but why now? is it to help his top spy guy get confirmed or quiet the complaints that are now coming from his own party? >> steve: meanwhile, should you support president obama on gun control because president obama is like your dad? >> the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. when your dad says something, you listen. >> steve: really? okay. michelle malkin will react on that, coming up next. >> brian: aren't they the same age? turbo tax tim geithner has a new gig. the man who didn't pay his taxes wants to write a book. what should he call it? your e-mails are pouring in. we'll read them and share them with tell him if he'll call back. "fox & friends" starts now. >> steve: that was tight squeeze. >> brian: it was so tight. now he gets in is unbelievable. >> steve: how did you get out so fast? >> brian: joel dragged me out by my hair. >> gretchen: that's why he has won two. he knows how to get in and out and drive it. >> steve: eac

governor christie. [applause] [laughter] >> thank you for your service. i have some comments. you have said president obama believes is done carefully, deliberately and responsibly, we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation's security. i absolutely agree. the american people have the right to know whether government does on their behalf. consistent with our national security, the presumption of transparency should be the rule, not the exception. and the government should make as much information available to the american public as possible. so on the committee when and we as members of congress push hard for access to the legal analysis targeting americans using drones, for instance, it erodes the government's credibility by the american people. i want to say i'm grateful to the president for allowing members of this committee to brief review some of the information. this is an important first debt. there's much more to be done in that regard. you have heard that from my colleagues today. i have long believed our government also has an obligation to the american people to face
and commerce subcommittee. thanks for talking to our viewers. guest: thanks for having me. host: republicans are saying to avoid the automatic spending cuts, we need entitlement reform on the table. president obama said yesterday if we cannot agree to something long-term like entitlement reform, let's do something short-term. do you agree? guest: no. president obama should be talking about the next sequester, because this one is happening. it was postponed to march 1 on the first and january. this is a promise that we made, the congress and the president made to the american people in order to get our fiscal house in order if we could not come up with the cuts, the savings to do that, these cuts would be automatic. host: you are ok with them? guest: i don't like it. the republican house has proposed two alternatives where the sequester might be differently apportioned and there might be some other things like medical liability reform. i am for that, but the senator never took it up. prize in 2012, the house passed an alternative scenario to sequester. if no one was interested in talking abou
recognizes the gentleman from california. mr. takano: thank you, madam chair. madam chair, i'd like to call this the don't shift blame amendment. the bill before us today tries to blame president obama for all our fiscal woes. judging by the language of this legislation, i'm convinced that house republicans live in a world where our entire national debt suddenly appeared on january 21, 2009. but let's be clear. our debt was not created by the president alone, and while the president may be responsible for sending us a budget blueprint, it is ultimately congress that holds the power of the purse. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are forgetting a key part of our job. the president does not pass budget, nor does he appropriate funds. congress does. my amendment makes a simple change to the finding section of the bill that clarifies that congress has the constitutional responsibility to fund the federal government. now, i can guarantee that when the majority introduces its budget this month it will be so extreme that it has no chance of passing both houses. the republican ma
